ABOUT Sheep Farm Felt:
I believe that wool is the most eco-friendly, sustainable, and versatile fiber you can use. I love that I get to share my love of fiber with the world! My felt ball garlands and billy ball flowers are made from soft, plush wool from a sheep farm in New Zealand. When I first started my shop I felted each and every ball by hand from our sheep's wool. However after a few months, I started to run out of wool from our farm and I couldn't keep up with the demand, so I partnered with a wonderfully talented group of certified fair trade artisans from Nepal to help with production. Now I get to offer more colors and a fast turn-around time, plus support other women makers- win-win-win!

I still love to share my sheep farm's fiber with you, which is why each purchase over $25 contains a little sheep made from wool from our farm! <3

About

Welcome to Sheep Farm Felt! Wooly love for everyone! [Video of a lovely Sheep Farm Felt customer @justinemadesign. Video credit: www.andreahanki.com]

FEATURED! A Sheep Farm Felt garland was selected for baby Samuel Lowe's celebrity nursery! (Parents on Season 17 of the Bachelor) See here: http://usm.ag/2fL29AI

FEATURED! One of our garlands was featured on MarthaStewart.com See here: http://bit.ly/1Nwsw1Q

FEATURED! I was selected to be a Featured Artisan on Handmade at Amazon in 2016: See the short film of when the Amazon crew came to my studio and farm! www.amazon.com/dp/B01GM6M7Z6

And now for the story… grab a cup of tea and enjoy! :)

My parents met in a living Colonial history village, my mom-a weaver and spinner, my dad-a woodcarver. After repeatedly fixing her loom (he was also the one sneaking in her shop early and breaking it), they fell in love, got married, and had 3 daughters. (The middle one being the most adorable, of course.)

We lived in Port Republic, a small historic town (pop. 1200) in South Jersey where my dad is the mayor and where generations of my family have lived since the early 1600's. When my sisters and I were 2, 4, and 6, we had a house fire and lost everything we owned.

The town rallied together and bought us everything we needed to begin again- books, toys, winter coats, pots and pans, gift certificates to the grocery store- everything you can imagine. Overwhelmed by the generosity of our town, my parents did the only thing they could think of to give back to the community they loved.

When our house was rebuilt, they added a classroom and opened up a folk art school and sheep farm so they could teach their skills to anyone who wanted to learn.

They taught woodcarving, basketry, quilting, candle making, weaving, doll making, and little girls came to our home for Colonial tea parties for their birthdays. My sisters and I were invited to teach the children’s classes along side of my mom when we all turned 12.

It was during these classes that I learned a vital life lesson:

If you want to connect with someone, create with them.

When people are making something to put in their home, or give away as a gift, they are essentially crafting a new piece of their history- something one-of-a-kind that they have made with their hands that now has a story.

Fast forward MY history...past getting an art degree, marrying my high school sweetheart, moving down the street from my parents’ farm, becoming an art teacher...to having my own little flock- 3 littles 4 and under.

I was blessed with the opportunity to stay home with them full time, and I found myself in the daily routine of filling up sippy cups and stepping on Cheerios, and wanting so desperately to do the two fundamental things I was taught: connect with people and create.

I had seen wool felt ball garlands on Pinterest, and thought it was the perfect project for me- simple, free (if you happen to have a never-ending supply of wool being grown down the street), and something I could make for people who wanted to add a bit of color and natural fiber into their homes.

I would felt and felt and felt little wool balls when my children napped, and after they went to bed I would string them a few in fun patterns, and then take photos of them the next day while my littles clung to my legs. I listed a few on Etsy....and I could never have imagined the response I would get.

After six months, my “never-ending supply” was not as “never-ending” as I had hoped, and I had a difficult time keeping up with demands doing all the felting myself. I found a supplier to partner with from Nepal who is free-trade, ethical, and uses the most lovely, colorful, wooliest wool from a sheep farm in New Zealand. I love that I get to help supply employment for marginalized women in Nepal, and we have now grown to three employees at Sheep Farm Felt!

I am in awe with what I get to do everyday. At the essence of each purchase is a celebration- a new baby, a birthday party, a dorm room to decorate, Christmas, or just a fun pop of color to add to a mantle. I am so blessed that I can make something that is a part of each of those stories.

My absolute favorite part of the process is wrapping up each purchase with tissue paper, and tucking in a little needle felted sheep ornament handmade from wool from our sheep farm. I know when my customers go to their mail box, it is going to make their day.

My job is more than just selling bits of colored wool on string, I am supplying people with a handmade treasure that will become a piece of their home and history.

How much garland do I need for my Christmas tree?

I generally recommend one 12 foot garland for every 2 feet of height of your tree.

1 foot tree= one 6 foot garland
2 foot tree= one 12 foot garland
3 foot tree= one 12 foot garland, one 6 foot garland
4 foot tree= two 12 foot garlands
5 foot tree= two 12 foot garlands, one 6 foot garland
6 foot tree= three 12 foot garlands
7 foot tree= three 12 foot garlands, one 6 foot garland
8 foot tree= four 12 foot garlands
9 foot tree- four 12 foot garlands, one 6 foot garland
10 foot tree= five 12 foot garlands

This estimation depends on the width of your tree. Please see any Christmas listing for a photo graphic to help you decide what length is right for you.
